How Effective is the Basic Skills Pull-Out Program?
A study examined the effectiveness of a reading and math basic skills pull-out program. Subjects, 60 students in first through sixth grades enrolled at an upper middle class, suburban school with small class sizes, were identified as having deficiencies in basic skills by their scores on the California Achievement Test (CAT). The basic skills instructional objectives were based on the category objectives for reading and math of the CAT. Subjects participated in basic skills instruction in small groups 3 to 4 times per week for half-hour periods, and their progress was assessed regularly. Results indicated that subjects as a whole made significant gains in reading and math. Results also indicated that statistically significant mean gains in reading occurred only in the first and third grades and that statistically significant mean gains in math occurred only in the first through the third grade. (Twenty-five tables of data are included; 28 references, a list of 19 software programs, and two appendixes of data with test results are attached.) (RS)
